Sweet Potato Chips

Sweet Potato Chips

Sharing is caring!

I always like to kid ourselves into thinking that the sweet potato is the “healthy” alternative to the potato.  I love potatoes and could eat them every day, literally.  Neither of us are yam fans, and do not even think of bringing over a marshmallow covered dish of sweet yams to our house.  When that yam has been called a sweet potato (even though a “yam” is not a sweet potato), I am intrigued!  I discovered sweet potato fries a few years back and fell in love.  Now I am digging on Sweet Potato Chips.  Move over russet there is a new gal in town!

We were cleaning out the freezer last week before our jaunt up to Lake Tahoe and found a lonely little grass fed Le Cense steak .  It was definitely time to fire up the grill, and get the oil hot for some sweet potato chips. 

I seasoned the steak with a Chipotle seasoning, I love to use and grilled it until rare.  The sweet potato chips really complimented the slightly smokey flavor of the steak, and I have to say it was a great choice!

Sweet Potato Chips

Sweet Potato Chips

Stop buying bags of sweet potato chips. This recipe for Sweet Potato Chips is very easy to make and tastes better than a bag of them.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 medium sized sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • sea salt, to taste

Instructions

    Slice the sweet potatoes thinly.

    Heat the canola oil in a shallow frying pan.

    To test for the right temperature, I drop a slice in and if it instantly starts to sizzle. If it does, then the oil is ready.

    Fry the potatoes in batches until golden.  Remove from the oil and blot dry with paper towels.

    Place the chips on a baking sheet in the oven at 200, to keep warm.  Before serving sprinkle with sea salt.  Serve.  Eat.

Notes

I like to serve chips and fries with a little dish of mayo that has been seasoned with a couple of minced cloves of garlic.

It's easiest to do this with a deep fryer but if you have a large stock pot, put some vegetable oil in the bottom and fry them up. Best thing to season them with is some coarse salt and balsamic vinegar.

When I was in college, a bunch of my friends would get together in residence and make potato chips. Now we were all in Hospitality and Culinary courses so we were creative like this, but they tasted so much better than anything we could buy in the grocery store.

Yes, just drizzle a little vinegar (I would use a nicer vinegar, like red wine or apple cider) on them. You'd have to eat them right away, though, since they might get soggy. Man, you just made me want some.

Yes, some chips are made from processed potatos. The potato mixture is added to lots of fillers, like flour, and seasonings, then shaped, dried and fried.

I know it is possible to make potato chips from mashed potatos, any number of store brands make potato "crisps" such as pringles for example. I have tons of instant potato mix and I am tired of mashed potatos, I want chips.
